Just to round out the references, commercial and military surface-supplied diving has used screw-on weights at least since the early 1900s. I believe the 2-bolt style in the image below was first used on leather weight belts on the US Navy Mark V deep sea dress. The image below is an improved version of the belt developed for the Jack Browne rig that uses more water resistant materials.
